More of the Cecily Tale, as promised!

First, thanks to everyone in sharing my glee at slowly taking over the Texas branch of Master Gardeners and turning it into a heavy metal, porn worshipping society (albeit, bedecked in lovely and FRESH garlands of flowers.) Also, got a fantastic postcard from Wesley to Spike, as passed along by karabair, received a holiday card (yay!!) from meli_77 and smashsc!! So happy...

And now? More of The 12 Gifts of Christmas From Someone Beneath Me
Protagonist: Cecliy, pre Halfrek
Rating: PG-13 for violence and Vixtorian language (madam! Your tongue!)
Summary: Play on the 12 Days of Christmas song, and haven't you wondered what pushed Cecily, a fine upstanding woman of note, into becoming a Vengeance Demon?

December the Sixteenth
I discovered whilst dancing with George Blassingame, a treasured family friend, that no one had heard of the utterly ridiculous gifts that had been delivered to my door. I trust George completely with my horrid secret. He displayed the perfect level of outrage at the cheek of Mr. Haugh. To better, more brighter topics then.

Roger (for I may call him Roger, at his wish!) danced several numbers with me and told me of his recent trip to France on business. It seems his family is purchasing a large estate in the country and he had heard of my "eye for balance and colour" and wished for me to see it! Oh, the fantasy may soon become reality... Mother is calling. There seems to be a gift from France awaiting me! My heart shall surely break with joy...

Father said he will have the constable come around. Perhaps a doctor should be sent to the Haugh residence as well. Surely the man is not right in his head. The uproar being caused by the staff is frightening me. Have you any idea the scale of mess caused by such creatures? Father threatened the delivery boy with bodily harm, so upset was he at the sight of that contemptable bird and fruit tree again. Notwithstanding the gilt cages, with three new additions! Oh, ho, the "gift from France" was not what my heart had yearned for, yet three more birds. Hens! Two of them having laid eggs already and the delivery discharged them onto the marble floor of the foyer. What sense is there in giving me such gifts? The man doesn't even sign the cards. They are simply addressed to me in an even hand: For Cecily. I feel as if I am going mad....

No parties for me tonight. I shall stay close to home and help the younger children assemble the noise poppers and drink Wassail.

Isn't it great? spikendru made it for me.

You know, I bet Cecily would use the word "endorsed." Speaking of discharging an endorsement, am I gonna see some Spander smut soon? :-)

oh Cecily, Cecily, Cecily.

glad you got the card. They do have a sequence, so I am going to try to restrain myself from posting them until Fred & Angel report receiving theirs.

though can you spot the sentence that explains why Wesley, upon rereading, decided NOT to send that card?

The tempo should pick up over the next few installments... Had to spend a little time with the frame work, but after this it begins to really get silly, loud, and (whispers) evil. Apparently the Victorians were fond of their ghost stories on Christmas Eve. I love that idea...

Now, my postcard had a 3 in the corner, so am I getting 2 more? or is it that they are tied in to the others? I've been restraining myself and not picking it apart in case I spoil myself. (I almost typed: soil myself. Will I do that, too?)

no, sorry. . .that's 3rd in the sequence; someone else is getting 1 & 2. they're thematically linked, but they're also meant to be read individually. (since, see, YOU are Spike, and you're only going to be reading what he sent you; but the sequence together tells a larger story; or something like that).

so. . read, read!

You should hear the evil snickering I am doing...it's quite terrifying...*eg*

What's really gunny is you picked my mum's maiden name for Spike...she spelles it "Haigh", but it's pronounced the same...get out of my brain! *g* *needs to stop watching "Storyteller"*
Dec. 9th, 2004 08:54 pm (UTC)
That was supposed to read "funny" not gunny...ack.

Also wante to add...birds laying eggs in the foyer? Genius!

Thanks for reading, BTW... Getting fewer and fewer readers... It picks up steam after this!

As to Haugh... That's MY family's name, too! In London, called FeatherstoneHaugh. Emmigrated to US in late 1800s, dropped the Haugh off. Had an uncle from the G-G Grandpa (British Army) come to Texas, help with the Alamo, then died without kids. Took a few generations down the line to get the Featherstones back to Texas, while my maternal line had been waiting here for centuries.

Did I help put you to sleep yet? Nighty-nite!

Wouldn't stop reading for the world...need to witness the full embarrasment...

Ahhh...family history. Mine is less interesting. Moved to Canada about 6 generations ago...end scene *g* Though my great grandfather was one of the first colonial people to move to BC. Also, we're realted to General Wolfe (a guy who fought the French for possestion of, I think, Upper Canada, but I could be wrong) and some dude who worked on the Jack the Ripper case...also, 24th cousin 3 times removed to Queen Elizabeth...plan on droppin by one day and saying, "Hey Lizzy! We're your family from the Colonies!" *eg*

Haha! You kill me! :D

When does Cecily get bitchslapped? I'm looking for the comeuppance that drives her to vengeance. Can't wait. I'm rubbing my hands together like Mr. Burns, btw.

Oooo! Party! That's right... Have fun, she'll get her dues soon, and I think I'm going to post multiple days instead of one day each day. It's bugging me.

I am JUST starting to get into the mood, and it's because we dug out our Muppets sing with John Denver CD.

Cecily is going to become quite overwhelmed... more later because I hate waiting.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
